I was once a Lady Vol, from out of state, who if it weren't for an athletic scholarship, would never have had an opportunity to receive higher education. And I admittedly did not have sufficient grades to be granted an academic scholarship either. So the mere idea of abolishing athletic scholarships or granting those to only people from in state is the most ridiculous idea ever. You shouldn't punish the entire village for one (or 7-10) idiot's actions... Also I bet if/when Mr. Rogers or Mr. Moore score 3 touchdowns in one game to beat the Gators, and a new music building is constructed due to the increase of revenue from that exact game, ya'll would/will be singing a much different tune.(prob Good 'Ol Ricky Top).... it is an awfully true statement that they, college football players, should not receive special treatment however, we are to only blame ourselves for that one.

I hope the proper punishment is asserted to the appropriate people and not just a slap on the wrist and a week's suspension of practice.
